and run, police have confirmed that ii—year—old zaneta krokova has lost the fight for her life. she and her cousin helina kotlarova, who was 12, had been crossing ashton road in oldham when they were hit by a car which did not stop. helina died at the scene. a lot of people witnessed the incident. we have had one or two similar incidents to like this in the last couple of years and it deeply affects pupils and it is giving them that support at this difficult time, and making sure they feel 0k. if they are struggling they need to come and talk to the staff and all staff are happy to help and will support them through this difficult time. police have released this image and say they have now identified the car as a blue peugeot 807. it was found abandoned after the crash. officers are questioning four men on suspicion of dangerous driving. flowers have been laid for the girls who had just come out of a shop near their homes. they were holding hands when they were hit. yesterday my daughter was crying, i
5:03 pm
cannot believe this happened. i cannot believe this happened. i cannot believe, these young girls! police are appealing for information. they say the girls‘ families who moved to england from the czech republic are devastated. our correspondent peter harris is in oldham for us. peter, the police are still appealing for the public‘s help. what are they saying about the investigation? the investigation continues. the update you just been hearing about is initially the police believed the girls had been struck by a box wagon golf. it materialise this afternoon that was not in fact the case. it was a peugeot 807. that car was then found abandoned nearby. the police have
5:04 pm
now issued the pictures of that, trying to build a picture of its movements around the time of the accident on new year's eve. that is one of the central developments within the investigation. also that one of the people arrested earlier has now been released and d arrested. there are now four men being questioned on suspicion of causing death i dangerous driving. the news that this is now a double tragedy came this afternoon. if i walk across here perhaps you can see there are floral tributes and candles on both sides of the road. many of those who have been, especially in the last few hours, they were children of ii or 12, classmates of the girls and teachers have been down here today. given the age of these people this is a very distressing time for many people in this community. peter, thank you. the so—called islamic state terror group says one of its militants
5:05 pm
was behind the new year's eve nightclub attack in istanbul in which 39 people are known to have died. the authorities are continuing their hunt for the suspect, who escaped after opening fire on party—goers. these are the latest pictures released by turkish police. officials have now identified all but one of the victims, and they say nearly two thirds of them were foreign nationals. funerals for some of those killed are being held today. from istanbul, our correspondent selin gerit reports. this is the gunman that has sent shock waves across the country. he is still at large, but now his motives could be a bit clearer. the so—called islamic state claimed responsibility for the attack at reina nightclub. in a statement, they said the shooting was carried out by a soldier of the caliphate in revenge for the turkish's governments strikes on islamic state in syria. eight people have been detained, but the gunman is not thought to be among them.
5:06 pm
in the area, some more funerals were held today. 25 of the victims are foreign nationals. most were from middle eastern countries. a 29—year—old actor from lebanon was among those shot. he's grateful to be alive. we heard something... likea gun. shooting. after three or four seconds, we heard something like that. we slip on the floor. and he come. the man. and when we are slipping, he is on us. security is still tight in istanbul. the wounds are open after a night of
5:07 pm
terror. the wounds are open after a night of terror. life is farfrom normal yet. this place used to be one of the most popular nightclubs in istanbul. now it is forever to be haunted. the gunman came by those doors and shot two people before rushing in. he fired up to 180 bullets, turning the venue into a scene of a massacre. now people are concerned about what might follow next. the hope is this might be the last time this nation grieves for innocent lives lost. and islamic state also says it ordered a suicide car—bomb attack in iraq in which 35 people were killed. the suicide bomber struck at an outdoor fruit and veg market in the sadr city part of baghdad — a shi'ite neighbourhood. it's the second major attack in baghdad in three days. police say a young man was killed in a deliberate house fire in east dunbartonshire,
5:08 pm
just hours after celebrating the new year with his girlfriend. twenty three year old cameron logan had been out with his partner for hogmanay before returning to his family home in milngavie, on the edge of glasgow. his girlfriend is in a critical condition in hospital. huw williams reports. emergency services were called here just before 7:30am yesterday morning. the body of a man was found inside the house. at 11 o'clock this morning, a private ambulance was at the scene and forensic staff and an undertaker removed the body under a blanket. a 24—year—old woman is being treated for serious injuries she suffered in the fire. a man and a woman in their 50s who needed treatment for breathing in smoke have been released from hospital. fire investigators say the fire was started deliberately. they have called it targeted and wilful. they are appealing for anyone who has been in the area yesterday morning, jogging or walking past, to contact them with any information
5:09 pm
they may have seen. somebody has died in a fire in a house, it must be one of the most scariest things which could happen to you. i cannot imagine. it must be horrible. i really feel for them. it looks as if they have lost their son. police scotland say they will be maintaining a high—profile presence at the scene. they say they are doing everything they can to trace the perpetrators and bring them to book. a postmortem examination will now take place to establish how cameron logan died. police are treating his attack as murder and attempted murder for the attack on his girlfriend and parents. campaigners are calling the latest hike in railway fares ‘a kick in the teeth' for passengers. tickets in england, wales, and scotland go up by an average of 2.3% from today.
5:10 pm
but the government's defended the hike, as our business correspondentjoe lynam reports. if you have to pay out thousands of pounds for a rail season ticket, your new year has not started well. with the exception of northern ireland, the average ticket will be 2.3% more expensive. season tickets go up by i.9%. still considerably more than inflation. even allowing for inflation, fares have risen by a quarter over the last 22 years. it is a disgrace, particularly as the railways aren't efficient. in terms of the increase, that is fair. it has to be paid. if that includes paying for our wages and people earn more money. the rises will sting commuters, who have had to put up with strikes and punctuality problems, insufficient seating and the impact of the weather.
5:11 pm
there is a lot happening. billions are being spent. nobody wants to see a fare increase, but costs rise and pay rises. fares are rising less fast than wages so that is a step in the right direction. there is a huge amount coming in from the passengers, about £9 billion that year. that should buy improvements without price rises. there should be more efficiencies. the investment is great, but do the prices have to go up every year? while passengers may baulk, the wider public may welcome the increases, because taxpayers are shouldering less of the cost of running the railways than they were. it means that commuters are shouldering more. and campaigners are calling for a totalfreeze in railfares, which they say has become disconnected from the service that they get.
5:12 pm
one ofjeremy corbyn's closest allies has suggested the labour leader could step down if the party's fortunes don't improve before the next general election, due in 2020. len mccluskey — the head of britain's biggest union, unite — has described labour's standing in the opinion polls as "awful." earlier i spoke to chris mason and asked him whetherjeremy corbyn had any inkling these comments were coming. the honest answer is i'm not sure. we asked jeremy corbyn and his tea m sure. we asked jeremy corbyn and his team that time point and he didn't wa nt to team that time point and he didn't want to comment. it is hard to see at this stage how it is useful for jeremy corbyn. but a figure as big as len mccluskey within the labour movement, someone who has backed jeremy corbyn and defended him from
5:13 pm
criticism, and then backed him through the second leadership race that happened over summer, but when he now comes out and makes remarks to the daily mirror that are as critical as this, openly questioning how long you might list. he says if the opinion polls are still, awful, in 2019 everyone would examine that situation including jeremy corbyn. he says situation including jeremy corbyn. he sasteremy corbyn is not an egomaniac, desperate to king cling to power for power ‘s sake. egomaniac, desperate to king cling to powerfor power ‘s sake. he is potentially putting a sell by date on the man he has backed. the usual criticism is thrown around, that they are blairites. it is seen as a criticism on the left of the labour movement. nobody in a million years would attach that to len mccluskey. and because of all of that, a very
5:14 pm
public tit—for—tat has developed between mr mccluskey and one of the rivals for hisjob between mr mccluskey and one of the rivals for his job as leader of unite. and why is he saying this now? len mccluskey is on the hunt for votes. the best part of the last couple of years he has been in the business of trying to attract votes forjeremy corbyn. he is currently trying to attract votes to len mccluskey. there has been real criticism from his principal rival and the argument has been that for sometime he has been obsessing about westminster politics rather than prioritising the views of unite members. and his language in response to mr mccluskey‘s interview in the mirror, he says he is astonished at the public ultimatum to thejeremy corbyn and mr mccluskey seems obsessed with being labour's puppet master. part of the difficulty about the position that the general secretary has adopted in relation to the labour party is that we have spent far too much time focusing on that. i'm running for the general secretary of unite the union,
5:15 pm
not the general secretary of the labour party. and actually this year is the most significant year for discussions about how we exit the european union, and actually it's the insecurity that our members face, not the insecurity of jeremy corbyn'sjob, that is the most important thing to me. and now, chris, len mccluskey has responded to that. he has. he'sjust put out a statement saying that unite's democracy would not be safe in gerard coyne's hands. his latest outburst is not an attack on myself as much as an labour's activists. he is unscrupulously remarks show his campaign is not driven by concern for unite and its members, it is to buy the failed plotters in the labour party for whom unite would be collateral damage in their political project to billing back blairism.
5:16 pm
he's not the politicians puppet. that gives you a sense of why this matters even if you are not one of the members of unite. this is a proxy war about the direction of the labour party and the extent to which the leader of the biggest union in the leader of the biggest union in the country should be seen to have a hotline to the current leader of the opposition. the headlines. a second girl has died following a hit—and—run in oldham on new year's eve. police have arrested four men. as funerals ta ke have arrested four men. as funerals take place in turkey for victims of the istanbul nightclub attack, police say they have detained eight people but are still searching for the main suspect. police say a 23 drove man has been killed at a house fire started deliberately in glasgow. his partner is in a critical condition in hospital. the first 1a areas in england to be
5:17 pm
selected for so—called "garden villages" have been announced, in a bid to create tens of thousands of new homes. the new villages must include green spaces and good transport links. the government says that the plans will help provide vital homes. but rural campaigners have warned there is still strong opposition to some of the projects. our correspondent daniela relph has been to one of the proposed locations at longcross, near cobham, in surrey. well, over the next couple of years, the idea is that this area here in longcross in surrey, close to the m25, will be transformed into one of these 1a garden villages. now, a garden village would have anything between 1500 and 10,000 new affordable homes. it would also have access to funds to develop green spaces and improve transport links. the locations announced by the government today, across england, scattered across england, from cumbria to derbyshire, stratford—upon—avon, suburban areas around london and down in devon and cornwall. and the idea is that they would create distinct communities. so these garden villages
5:18 pm
wouldn't just be extensions of what already exists, they would be distinct communities in themselves. and they would have access to around £6 million of government money over the next two years. now, the labour party and some of those who have looked at the housing problem are wary of getting too excited about this project. they say, yes, if delivered, it will provide much—needed new housing. but it quite simply isn't enough. stephanie inglis was given a 1% chance of survival after a motorcycle accident. people raised money to get her back home. backing the german working her way back to new health. last summer, stephanie

ingalls was in a coma with a serious brain injury. hertraining ingalls was in a coma with a serious brain injury. her training to become an elite athlete, she says, made a real difference to the speed of her recovery. the doctors have told me that if it wasn't for the fact that i was physically so strong and fit before my recovery would not have been so good. it is because of my background that has helped boost my recovery. stephanie had been in vietnam teaching english when she was injured while travelling on a mike motorbike taxi. she will this teaching her class but little else of that day and nothing from the after. now it is about looking ahead. i don't want to let myself get down. i haven't cried since i do get down. i haven't cried since i do get about the accident because i think it is a waste of time. if i spend time feeling down or feeling sorry for myself it could be easy for my to do that, but it won't help my progression and could set me back. so i tend not to dwell on it. years of training led stephanie to a
5:20 pm
place on the podium at the last commonwealth games. that drive and determination is still evident. what did ancient civilisations believe that the sun? her sister said stacey is helping with her with exercises. she's doing speech and language and gets work to do and gets me to give a hand. it is good because of that. is she a hard task master? she can be. she can be. but it's good. with this support from her friends and family, stephanie has one ambition firmly in mind. my long-term goal is to get back into sport and compete in the next commonwealth games in judo, in 2022. i think if i get selected for team scotland i'm capable of winning another medal. herfamily, capable of winning another medal. her family, grandfather, mother and
5:21 pm
father are grateful had their daughter is alive. and they are thankful of donations from strangers of more than £300,000 towards stephanie's life—saving treatment abroad. i can't thank them enough. she's here, she's a miracle, and it is thanks to everybody who donated to bring her home. for us it is a delight going into another year with stephanie here with us. with the new year comes another big operation for stephanie. she is hopeful she will soon be fit enough to woo back to her flat and start a job. in surviving the accident, the 28 defied the odds. she is aiming high for the future. the uk is a major player in one of the fastest growing industries — video games. with pioneering firms in everything from virtual reality to mobile games, there are big hopes that 2017 will see further expansion and jobs in the sector. rory cellan—jones has been spending time with one of our biggest
5:22 pm
independent games firms. he was finding out what went into creating a character in a game, and ended up playing a part himself. look straight ahead, straight at this postcard, what we are going to do is get you to do a range of emotions. grrr! in the studio in oxford, i'm preparing for a role in a world war two blockbuster. not a movie, but a video game. oh, my leg... so this is the first stage in making me a character in the game and now i'm going to have to pull a lot of funny faces. so wrinkled, screwed up face. it's going to take many weeks but eventually i will be a character, a goodie i hope, in sniper elite 4. in 2017, this will be a major release from rebellion — one of britain's biggest independent games firms. when we first visit back in september they have a lot on their plate, including crucially a game for the sony vr launch. a big investment with a lot hanging on it. when they embarked
5:23 pm
on this project back 18 months ago, there was a great deal more scepticism about how successful vr was likely to be. so it was a punt — or i should say a smart gamble. these guys and girls here play games professionally from morning until night. it is a quarter of a century since jason kingsley and his brother started rebellion. when my brother and i started rebellion, we were always being talked about as if we were wiz—kids. but we are not any more. we are not kids. so we are grown adults with a quite a big corporation behind us and we make entertainment that sells across the world. i mean, china, consumers in china buy our games, consumers in brazil, all these emerging markets are exciting for us. roughly 200 people work here from across europe. but one thing strikes me. i can't help noticing a lot of men, very few women. is it getting any easier for women to get into the games industry?
5:24 pm
yes, i would say so. me growing up, i would not have even dreamt about getting into games, but for the last ten years it seems like the doors have been more open. especially for women. two months later, we returned to rebellion to find out what they have done with my face. i suppose it is a good likeness. what happens next? we will take this high resolution model and we will put it into the game and we will see what you look like in that. 0k. so i'm a goodie, am i? yes, you are currently the hero of the sniper elite series. i have been transformed into an all action soldier. in in the world of video games, anything is possible! ‘sand ‘s and bring his new persona into work. restaurants cafes and bakeries

5:26 pm
changing their perception. maybe they'll go, we have saved 12,000 meals but apparently people have gone home and said the food and beverages perfectly good. why not just give the food away to the homeless? we love abuse do that. if we had an infinite number of volunteers working 20 47, monday to sunday, that would be great. there's no such thing as a free lunch but this way it is cheaper if you are flexible about when and what you eat. ijust ordered some food on the app, it is a reduced price and then you get to choose from a rising of different things. i got some pasta with spicy chicken and vegetables. different things. i got some pasta with spicy chicken and vegetablesi million tonnes of food and drinks are frodo thrown away every year in the uk. now catching on in several cities this app aims to cut down on waste one meal at a time. it is almost half past five. let's

ta ke it is almost half past five. let's take a look at the weather. it's been a fairly chilly start. we've had some sunshine during the day. we have clear skies persisting through the evening and overnight so we are in for a chilly night. particularly across central and southern parts of england and into wales, we could have some icy stretches on untreated surfaces first thing tomorrow. if you have a commute back to work it will be a chilly one, so pack your gloves, leave some extra time to scrape your cars, particularly in the south. we could see loads. the northwest is not quite as cold. this is eight o'clock tuesday morning. the crowd winning with it rain and wind. patchy drizzly wane for northern ireland and the northwest of england. the east of scotland and north east of england will be clear and colder thirsting. as we work
5:28 pm
away south we will have o'clock cold frosty start with icy stretches and perhaps even the odd pocket of mr freezing fog. stop tuesday mooning starting dry but cold and as we head through the day it is a north west, south east split. towards the north and the west there will be more cloud, quite windy for scotland with outbreaks of rain, but largely dry elsewhere. sunshine in the south about five or 6 degrees but in the north it will be eight or nine celsius. high pressure dominates things through much of the week ahead. it stays with us as we move into wednesday. a weakening front is sliding south and fizzling away but it introduces colder air across eastern parts of scotland at least in england. if you are exposed to those north sea coast breeze it will feel quite chilly towards the east but there will be sunshine wearers in the northwest, south—west i mean,
5:29 pm
it will be milder. in nice, in that sunshine it will be about 45 degrees, alt or nine celsius towards the south—west. wherever you are it will look driver wednesday. thursday the high—pressure sticks around, a bit of wintry sunshine, fairly chilly. friday has a bit of a change as the front moves its way across the country bringing cloud, breeze and some outbreaks of rain. high—pressure in charge before then. things are chilly but with sunshine. hello.

5:32 pm
had opportunities to make good saves and we had good opportunities. it is still suffered so it is a little bit of coincidence in situations like this. manchester city are back up to third in the table after beating burnley at the etihad despite playing the majority of the match with ten men. captain fernandinho was sent off after half an hour, for a two footed challenge, but two goals in four minutes in the second half gave city a 2—0 lead — the first from gael clichy, the second from sergio aguero. ben mee got one back for burnley late on, but city held on, they're now seven points behind league leaders chelsea. but all of the hard of a journalist, not me. you do not seem to have the

5:34 pm
premiership is like some cannot take anything for granted. as alsom should not have to become more disciplined process. when our play was in the first half, it was fantastic but you cannot put fences you have a top middlesbrough and leicester played out an uneventful goalless draw at the riverside where there were just five shots on target. boro had the best of the chances — marten de roan blasted over early on. the closest leicester came to scoring was this leonardo ulloa header — straight at brad guzan. still no away win in the league for the champions this season. gaston ramires should have won it for middlesbrough with eight minutes left, but he smashed wide. it shows how good we are playing and
5:35 pm
we had a chance. he has made shots today we need to compete. the fight the way the players of fighting. spirit was fantastic, second clean sheet in a row and the performance was good. of course, middlesbrough tried to win. but we were very solid. strong and we tried to go on the counter attack. it was a good match, a good game, a draw is it ok. united looking for their sixth win in six league games with a win. 20 minutes on the clock, 0—0. let's see how all of those results translate in the table. a bit of a missed opportunity for liverpool — they've closed the gap on chelsea,
5:36 pm
but only by a point. manchester city are hot on their heels, just two points behind them now. fourth—placed arsenal are at bournemouth tomorrow. at the bottom of the table, a good result for sunderland, but they're still in the relegation zone. hull city paid the price for their poor second half performance, and also stay in the bottom three. fellow relegation strugglers swansea play tomorrow. paul clement's appointment as swansea city's new manager has moved a step closer, it's understood that he's signed a two and a half year deal after his current club bayern munich gave him permission to talk to the club. it's thought that clement will be at selhurst park tomorrow for swansea's match against crystal palace, before oficially taking charge of the team. he'll become swansea's third manager of the season, and will face the task of lifting them from the foot of the table. clement is currently carlo ancelotti's assistant at bayern, having also worked with him at chelsea, paris st germain and real madrid. richerd cockerill has been sacked as director of rugby
5:37 pm
at leicester tigers. cockerill has been on the coaching staff for over a decade, but tigers have struggled to contest major trophies in recent years, and currently sit fifth in the premiership table. the 46 year old said he still believed he was the right person to lead the team, but respected the board's decision. they are the manchester united of by, they are the manchester united of rugby, the crowd expects the very best from the tigers and this is one of the biggest managerial sackings that has taken place over the past five, ten years. where last ago next is interesting, they do have a man in aaron major is the head coach and will be the interim director of by. will be the interim director of rugby. they need a director of rugby overseeing issues, a number of names in the frame. never look past stuart lancaster is now doing a greatjob with leinster and perhaps wants to go back to english rugby. egg white,

you know the simpsons movie, with the dome? that's what they thought would happen. they thought the dome would come over and no—one else could come in. in actual fact, we voted leave. you know, what's changed? yeah, yeah, i voted, because i had just turned 18. i'd never voted before so i was kind of excited to be voting. the majority of people that voted to leave was middle—aged and elderly, trying to make britain how it was. we chose to leave. but we're great britain anyway, so... regardless of whether we leave or not, we're still one of the biggest nations in the world. so we'll still get trade and still do well. the british people have made a very clear decision to take a different path. and as such, i think the country requires fresh leadership to take it in this direction. i think he just put his hands up, man. he was like, you guys
